Boyd, Barbara Foulks – Montessori Life: A Publication of the American Montessori Society, 2008
The Montessori philosophy advocates that the classroom be a reflection of the home, the community, and the world.

Schonleber, Nanette S. – Montessori Life: A Publication of the American Montessori Society, 2008

Brunold-Conesa, Cynthia – Montessori Life: A Publication of the American Montessori Society, 2008
One of the major components of Dr. Montessori's plan for peace education is a curriculum that de-emphasizes nationalism. The "big picture" of the cultural curriculum encourages the perspective that people are citizens of Earth first, and only secondarily American, Japanese, Polish, or other nationalities. Through the fundamental needs…

Short, Barb – Montessori Life: A Publication of the American Montessori Society, 2007
One thing about the Madison Montessori School that impressed this author is its belief in the power and importance of art in education: that an art program can enhance the power of the core learning programs designed for the children and that art develops the whole child, the whole family, the whole school, and the whole community. Its program,…

Shortridge, P. Donohue – Montessori Life: A Publication of the American Montessori Society, 2007
When Maria Montessori addressed two wildly enthusiastic American audiences at Carnegie Hall in December 1913, she thrilled the parents in attendance, but sent a shock wave through the educational establishment. Instead of accommodating skeptics from the teacher-training institutions seated there that night, she appealed directly to parents who…

Powell, Mark – Montessori Life: A Publication of the American Montessori Society, 2007
